Parent Engagement Panel: George Couros

George Couros is the school principal of Forest Green School and Connections for Learning, located in Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada. The schools are from ages K-12, and he loves working with kids of all ages.  He is passionate about distributed leadership within his school, and believes that creating a collaborative environment with all stakeholders, will help to ensure that educators meet the best needs of all children.  You can learn more about George on his own blog entitled “The Principal of Change”. George founded the Connected Principals group to gather shared thoughts of school administrators that want to share best practices in education. He is someone who is passionate about all of the things that he does. George believes that we must continuously “sharpen the saw” by taking part in other pursuits, so he am actively involved as a fitness instructor with World Health Edmonton, along with being an ACAC Basketball Official with the Edmonton Basketball Officials’ Association (EBOA). He loves running and sports, and is a HUGE fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. In fact, he has two dogs now that are named after a current and former Laker (Odom and Shaq). The more well rounded we are as educators, the more our students will see us as real people that they can connect with in the classroom.
